watery spring

Water everywhere. Lake Superior doesn't really freeze very often, and so we see her moving all winter....some fabulous storms and then calm days.

Then the rivers taking all the snow melt and bringing it down to Mother Superior. Here's the falls on the Brule and above a beach near where the river comes into the big lake.

And so it's time to put away snowshoes and get out hiking boots, put away cross country skis and get out our canoes. This picture is from our last snowshoe on the Crow Creek near our house...that day you could hear the river bubbling and roaring under our feet.

It's an amazing privilege to live so near water like this...the light seems to be everywhere. Watch the world come alive!


  1. How absolutely beautiful. I can almost hear the crash of the waves and the waterfalls. Sigh.

  2. Oh, beautiful indeed! So glad the blog is up and running again. It is such a neat window into the Great North.
